Former Army Ranger Chance Grayson takes chances like his name. He’s the wild child of the Grayson brothers. After his 4th tour to Afghanistan and Iraq, he left the military and returned home to Hellfire, TX. An adrenaline junky he’s afraid to slow down, afraid the memories of war will catch up. He rides a motorcycle and lives at the ranch when not at the fire station.
Army dog handler, Kate Bradley, left the military and adopted her military war dog. She hired onto the sheriff's department on the condition the dog came with her. New in town, she moves into a garage apartment and goes to work retraining her bomb-sniffing dog to find drugs.
Chance teams with Kate to find a local arsonist bent on blowing up Hellfire. They work close together to determine if their bogey is just burning buildings or creating a distraction in order to find something else. Meanwhile, the firefighter and the deputy spark a tinder of desire that threatens to go up in flames.

Up in Flames Elle James Kate and Chance were drawn together from the first and they fought the attraction. Bacchus tends to anchor her while pushing her towards Chance. A good development of characters whom you can relate to and whom you want to get their happy ever after. A sweet romance with a touch of suspense. Once I picked it up couldn’t put it down. Sweet romance
Love a strong female lead!
This is book 6 in the Hellfire, Texas series and it features Chance and Kate. He’s carrying around some PTSD from events that happened while deployed. Even though she had previously been deployed, her issues stem from what awaited her after she came home. She’s decided to start over in the small town of Hellfire, Texas. It’s true what they say about love. You find it when you’re not even looking for it.
Fantastic characters! This book has a great story line that was complete with smooth flowing events. I love visiting the wonderful people of Hellfire, Texas!
Up in Flames, HOT!!
I received a complimentary copy of this book and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
I have waited a long time for this story. This is a great addition to this awesome series. The plot was wonderful and kept me glued to my e-reader. I couldn't read this fast enough. I cheered when I found out that Chance was next for his' story. Chance is the former Army turned firefighter, who returned home after losing the love of his life on his last deployment. Kate gets out of the Army with her MWD, Bracchus, and starts fresh in Hellfire, TX as a deputy Sheriff. This is their journey to a HEA. Whew and what a journey it is.
I adore that prior characters make appearances here. Ms. James has done a fantastic job in endearing the entire Grayson family and several others into my heart. I would LOVE to move to Hellfire, TX but now all of the Grayson men are taken!!
I loved the dual POV format here. Seeing how the characters' thought process is, is wonderful for me to really understand them better.
I highly recommend this story to anyone. You could read it as a stand-alone but why would you when the entire series is wonderful. I will definitely be re-reading it into the future.
